    That is one of my favorite things about my Ridgerunner. I'm hoping to have the same experience with Blackbird XLC + Wooki. Despite multiple Shug videos, I never really stopped struggling with cold spots in my current gathered end (a Sparrow).

    For OP, I like to bring along one of those inexpensive Costco down blankets to wedge in anyplace I feel a cold spot if other adjustments haven't worked.

    Great comments..thanks. Ive come to the conclusion Bridge hammocks are for those who sleep quietly in one spot all night and Gathered Ends are for those who sprawl all over the place in their sleep. Im kinda caught in the middle because I sprawl all over my hammock but the Bridge is much better on my back.

    Agreed. I put a down throw wadded up in one of the saddlebags just in case.

    I have expirienced this also, I think it comes from laying with you knee or elbow against the seams along the sides. These are very tight an you squeeze the down an it loses loft and does not insulate. I've been awakened by a cold knee or elbow before and simply changed my position and in a few minutes gotten warm enough to fall back asleep.
